We stopped by here after reading the reviews, even though it was nearly 6 PM and the church was open. I was impressed at the beautiful design and the stained glass windows. One of the nicest and simplest churches we saw on our Ireland trip - a very pleasant sanctuary.

I visited this church on a recent visit to Kenmare. I was expecting a typical old-style interior for this age of church, but it was rather modern inside.

We received news of a death back home, and came here to light a candle for the deceased. The church is lovely and well maintained, with beautiful stained glass and wood carvings. Be sure to look up!

Extremely surprised by the design and colors.I love the woodwork, the vault ceiling, clean cut wall design and stain glass. Beautiful church in and out. Don't miss, its just in the walking distance of downtown.

If you go to Ireland you are most likely going to see a church or two. In this church when I looked closely there were these beautiful angels "holding" up the rafters. It was a beautiful detail. Also in this church there is a little side room or entrance that has beautiful tile work in it as well. It was... More

This is an unusual church, but very beautiful. Make sure you look up when you are inside and admire the woodwork. A very peaceful place with an interesting history
